The Supreme Court's Citizens United decision allowed a flood of unlimited, anonymous campaign contributions into our political system. Only by ending the corrupting influence of special interest money will our politicians again be beholden to the people, not the highest bidder.
By signing, you pledge to support a constitutional amendment to overturn Citizens United and give Congress the power to regulate campaign finance. You also pledge to vote only for candidates who publicly support such an amendment. If enough people sign this pledge and follow through, our swing votes will elect more pro-amendment officials, thus increasing the chances of such an amendment becoming law. See our complete plan here.
Please sign this pledge and then share a link to this page [http://bit.ly/UNR25s] among all of your social media and email contacts!
Please sign this petition to get Big Money Corruption out of politics forever.
As you know, the U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 Citizens United decision allowed a flood of unlimited, anonymous campaign contributions into our political system. Only by ending the corrupting influence of special interest money will our politicians again be beholden to the people and not to the highest bidder.
By signing this petition you pledge to support overturning Citizens United with an amendment to the U.S. Constitution that enables Congress to regulate campaign contributions.
There is widespread support across the political spectrum for this idea. In February of 2010, ABC News reported that an ABC News/Washington Post poll found that “80 percent of Americans...oppose the [Citizens United] ruling, including 76, 81 and 85 percent of Republicans, independents and Democrats....Even among people who agree at least somewhat with the Tea Party movement...73 percent oppose the high court’s [decision]...”
By signing this petition, you also pledge to vote only for candidates who support such a Constitutional amendment. If enough people sign this pledge and follow through, there will be enough swing votes to elect only pro-amendment politicians, thus guaranteeing that this amendment will become law.
Our plan is to approach all candidates for Congress and state legislatures and ask them to support the amendment and then to get voters to withhold their votes from any candidates not on board. A similar approach worked for those who successfully pushed through the Prohibition amendment in 1919. Our plan, including the historical precedents, can be found in detail in this editorial.
Thanks for signing the pledge! Now please pass it along to other interested voters!
